SLEEPY HOLLOW RATINGS: Did The Midnight Ride win the race?


“Now THAT is the #SleepyHollow episode I have been waiting for!” ~Den of Geek  

Took the words right out of my mouth!  What a midnight ride indeed, best episode to date!  But let’s see who was watching.  The overnight numbers are in.  Last week, The Sin Eater gave Sleepy Hollow a 2.5/6 rating with 7.08M viewers.  A  season low, but we expected that with the VERY LONG baseball hiatus.  This week Episode 7, The Midnight Ride took  7 million viewers on a journey maintaining last week’s audience garnering a 2.5 rating.  This episode managed to put Sleepy Hollow back to #1 in its time slot with A18-49.  Plus, this is an episode that has serious buzz, so I am thinking major DVR and +3 LIVE numbers will be beautiful! We still need to see if SH will adjust up or down later in the day. I will be updating this blog as more details come in.  

“The Midnight Ride was great fun, simultaneously batshit crazy and somehow coherent, with the usual mishmash of historical fan fiction, gruesome horror, and witty repartee mixed into a cocktail that should be overpowering and trite, and yet isn’t” ~ Zack Handlen, A.V. Club

What do the experts say?  

Gaude Paez Morose “Choptastic!! #SleepyHollow held steady with last week’s 2.5 rtg and 7 mil viewers!”
Joe Adalian ‏“SLEEPY HOLLOW steady at a 2.5 A18-49. In a related note/editorial comment, last night’s episode was pretty much perfect.”

NBC Renews 5 Dramas including Revolution

Christmas comes early folks~!  We got ourselves a season two!  And if all goes according to what my sources tell me, it will come back to Wilmington.  I sure hope they are right!  I asked cast member Tim Guinee his thoughts and he said, “Over the moon about it.  I’m really grateful that the hardest working cast and crew in the business is getting another shot.  Yay ILM!”

Read the entire article from The Hollywood Reporter – “From J.J. Abrams‘ Bad Robot and Warner Bros. TV, Revolution ranks as NBC’s top scripted drama across all of primetime — averaging more than 6 million viewers in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic.”

The story continues as they link part of Revolution’s success to having The Voice as a lead-in on Monday nights this season.  Regardless of coming back from a mid-season break slightly down in the numbers, they say it is still very much a success for the 2012-13 TV season.

Thank you NBC and Bad Robot because we sure love having Revolution film here in Wilmington, NC!
